Earls Test Kitchen

Met up with R for another Happy Hour adventure! This time we decided to go to Earls Test Kitchen because it was close to my work. Their happy hour is from 3 pm – 6 pm. We got there around 5:45 pm and it was really busy! What we drank: Moscow Mule and Mojito ($7…

Bambudda

I wanted to check out Bambudda before they are closed for good on February 19. Getting to the actual restaurant was a bit of an adventure, because the building it’s located in already has a bunch of construction surrounding it so it’s really hidden. R and I sat at the bar so that we can…

Prestons Restaurant + Lounge

UPDATE: They have extended this menu until February 13th! For an early birthday dinner I met with R for at Prestons for a delicious meal! I’m pushing this post out quickly because Dine Out is ending this weekend, and I think this $30 Dine Out is worth every penny! What I drank: Gin and Tonic. Can’t…

EXP Restaurant + Bar

I got hoodwinked into coming here during the League of Legends World Championship. I felt like a fish out of water, because the entire bar was filled with fans watching the finals being broadcasted on ever wall in the bar. The overall feel of the bar was quite quaint. There was gaming paraphernalia everywhere, and…

ARC

After a crazy rough week, we decided to treat ourselves at ARC for a fancy lunch (with some libations of course) What we drank: Sangria, Lillet Rouge, grapefruit & lime juice, fresh fruits, sprite ($15) This was very light and refreshing! What we drank: Kissed by a Bee, tequila, vodka & lillet, lemon & honey,…

The Flying Pig

I went here with S for her belated birthday lunch! I made reservations, but on this occasion I don’t think it was needed because the restaurant was only at most 1/4 full the entire time we were there. What I ate: BC Honey Mussels and Frites (broth of the day: White wine with basil, chili…

West Oak

Decided to drop in here after our first two Yaletown picks were inexplicably closed on a Wednesday… But I’m actually really glad that we did because the food was pretty delicious! Chinois Prawns with housemade spicy aioli and candied walnuts ($15) This was basically a leveled up ebi mayo and it was delicious. The prawns were…

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar (Alberni)

What I ate: Mixed Greens ($9) Field greens and garden vegetables in a vinaigrette dressing. This salad was pretty bad. I should have asked what they meant by “garden vegetables” but having giant rings of raw onion and shredded celery is not my type of salad. The vegetables were fresh though! I would never get this…

One Under

My coworkers and I came here after work for a quick bite and to play some indoor golf. On Monday the room booking is 50% off ($75), so it’s a really good deal if you gather 4 friends or so to play. Simulation golf is harder than it looks! What I ate: Margherita Pizza ($13) San…

ARC Bar – Fairmont Waterfront

Dug through the archives for this #throwback post! I was feeling particularly indulgent one day so I went and ordered everything off the ARC dessert menu. I just checked their current dessert offerings and what is pictured below is no longer offered which is too bad because what I ate was delicious! I adored the…

Cactus Club Cafe (Coal Harbour)

In terms of chain restaurants my preferred choices are Cactus Club and The Keg. The food at Cactus Club is always delicious and the interior is beautiful! I love sitting by the windows and soaking in the sun and view during lunch! It gets really busy during the lunch rush and they don’t take reservations,…

Globe@YVR Restaurant

Early mornings and me don’t mix well together, so when I had to wake up before 6 am for a flight, I knew I didn’t want to start my morning off with fast food. I decided to try out the Globe Breakfast Buffet at the Globe restaurant located inside the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. I went with…
